Our first Stage was quick, stratigic, cut to the chase kind of ride.
Ramon was at the bridge at 3pm. We left right away and headed along the Baker Beach over look out pacing any traffic that might try to pass on the downhill. Stopped at the Legion of Honor for R to check his messages. Super duper headwind along the cliff house, and to Lake Merced. Had to real R in when he would get ahead and not make the turns with me...(Sir Francis Drake Syndrome)-(Ask R & Marco bout that),
Some fancy Bike messenger work along the Mission gauntlet, and up the beginning of the climb. Some little A**** shot across lanes behind us and leaned on the horn to screw with us. One day he'll be on foot and I'll remember his ugly face.
Pretty quick pace all the way up. We passed three riders on the way. Pretty girl on a odd bike...I said nice bike...silence and crickets...
We blasted back down and I opened it up to test the new wheelset...Very happy with my purchase. No crosswind calamity. Tight as all get out on the corners! I felt like a moth with a new Falcons tail...
We rolled back to town and headed home...Only to rise again in the dawn and meet out next challenge.
Pete.........ps Thanks Ramon always a pleasure to ride with you dude.
